PREFACE TO 1917-18 EDITION. 

WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged useful information regarding Buteshire 
as it is bo-day — with its officials, householders and business 
people — and once again have pleasure in giving the com- 
pilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain, economies, and consider- 
able increases in the prices of material and labour, conse- 
quent upon the continuance of the Greatest of all Wars, 
we have made sacrifices to produce our Directory as com- 
plete as formerly— and that without any advance in price 
to former patrons. Complimentary copies restricted. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we intend 
to keep permanent this decided benefit. 

Our desire is to overlook no interest ; and therefore, 
we respectfully solicit notices of alterations or additions 
as early as possible, so that these may be given effect to. 

This Directory is a much more important publication 
than many imagine. One of the earliest publications con- 
nected with Buteshire was a Directory, issued about one 
hundred years ago in conjunction with Renfrewshire. The 
printing of portions of it about forty years ago in one of 
the local papers made such interesting reading, that the 
idea of having such a present-day record for Rothesay took 
the popular fancy and led up to our present compilation 
for the whole of Buteshire. 

This Directory is not only at hand for refei^ence at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the libraries of Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, 
Dublin, Cambridge, Oxford, &c.,and in numerous business 
houses and agencies in busy centres throughout the king- 
dom; so we are particularly anxious that nothing of benefit 
to Buteshire be. omitted, but that all interests have a good 
show, and everything be brought thoroughly up to date. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the upheavals of the 
the world war, our county as well as the glorious British 
Empire, is intact; and will, by strenuous endeavour, sur- 
vive the blast recuperate, and flourish again — brighter and 
better than ever. HIGGIE & CO., Publishers.

— Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
CuiibrAes, off the Ayrshire Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
siaenock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,5L0are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water. There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothksay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14.151: 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In

Parish of North Bute. 

r 1" , HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*■ village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connecled by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the

Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718'

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully-

each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in trade. 

The earliest publications connected with Ilothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes Rothesay, but 
embraces the whole County of Bute, and though it 
has increased in usefulness and circulation, its

COMPAEED with National Languages ESPEEANTO is 
like a well-kept garden, the roots of the produce of which are 
taken from jungles and scientifically treated pro bono publico. 

The 1 1 tli Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to Sau Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a 
Tuta Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the llt.h Tuta Mondo Esperanto 
Kongreso. 

The language of peace and universal brotherhood is spreading, and the wide- 
awake and subtle Germans were prompt to circulate, by its means, their version of the 
cause of this terrible war. They posed as an innocent peace-loving people, who had 
a cruel war thrust upon them, and the child-like and bland Teutons were forced to 
defend their homes from ruthless destruction (!) Esperanto is not desired by every- 
body, but it is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
there is not a single civilized country in the world without an Esperanto group or 
individual members, and to these the German version went, and was translated into 
the languages of the different countries. These communications (circulated through 
the neutral language) were taken to be unbiased, whereas the communications in Eng- 
lish, French, Flemish, Russian or Italian, etc., were believed to be prejudiced. Truth 
and righteousness have bad much to overcome, but they will prevail. Germany long 
schemed for the good opinion of neutrals, while using red-cross ambulances for their 
machine guns, and sinking without warning (by their subniaries) any unarmed vessel 
they meet and rejoice at the drowning of thousands of innocent viciims, and (by their 
airships) bombard defenceless towns and glory in their own beloved " frightfulness. '' 
" Peace on earth and good will to men is comin' yet for a' that," but it is not coming 
through, but in spite of, German might and diplomacy.

With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easly-acquired Lang- 
uage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto long long before they can understand our words 
and the fickle and changing sounds of the letters of our adopted 
alphabet. 



BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



1 



In Part III of our Directory, we do not aim at 
printing such complete lists of Householders as were 
found in the official Voters' Roll, published in 
pre-war times. While, however, we omit several 
of the names of the hundreds of persons whose 
houses are closed during the Winter months, we 
print those new ones which would not appear in 
the Voters' Roll until they had tenanted their 
houses for more than a year.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 

"This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years, and the date of its issue is gradually becoming mid- 
way between the original dates of issue of these two 
publications. We begin our researches early enough, but 
the airy Summer publications must hustle out while the 
sun shines. The Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent resident. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for probable additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports, 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue of the Directory 1 

We are not yet enabled to publish all the information that we 
desire, but that does not prevent us compiling (in antici- 
pation of greater reciprocity) more than we at present 
print. 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 



HIGGIE & CO. 



22 Bridge Street, Rothesay, 
June, 1917. 



Bute County Directory. 



OP INIONS OF THE PRE SS. 

" It is splendidly compiled." — Campbeltown Courier. 

" Being invaluable, it should have a large circulation." — Argyllshire Advertiser. 

" Contains a large amount of information carefully revised to date." — Glasgow 
Herald. 

The Directory is indispensible to business people in the county." — Rothesay Ex- 
press. 

" Useful local annual. A useful book of this kind is a convenience that no busy 
trader can afford to be without. ' — Buteman. 

" Every inch of paper has been utilised in a kind of bewildering profuseness, as if 
the publishers were determined to give full and overflowing measure,'^- Dunoon Ob- 
server. 

" Every little parish has its own pages in the book. It contains much general in- 
formation relating to the County of Bute. It is well worth the price — one shilling." 
— Ardrossan Herald. 

Messrs Higgie and Co, are to be highly complimented on the production of a 
volume which, for reference, should prove invaluable to all classes of the community. 
— Greenock Telegraph. 

" Will be found invaluable to those having any connection with Rothesay ; and as 
for the many visitors who are attracted to the island, they could scarcely get on with- 
out it." — (iieefloek Herald. 

" If the importance of a place is to be judged from the local directory, as claimed, 
then the County of Bute in general, and Rothesay in particular, must be said to occupy 
a high plane." — Evening Times. 

" The Directory should be indispensible to residents in the County of Bute, and all 
who have official or business relations with it. It is really a valuable volume for the- 
nhabitants of the County of Bute." — Largs and Millport Weekly News. 

" Indeed in this book is to be found all the information which the most inquiring 
persoQ requires to know about the county. The matter is well arranged. Such a book 
is a necessary part of the equipment of every office which does business with islands 
whose interests are so closely associated with those of Glasgow." — Evening Times. 

O 

Besides the opinions of the Press we have received spontaneous testimony of the 
usefulness of the Directory — from professional and business gentlemen and pleasure- 
seekers, not only in the county but beyond it. 

A Rothesay public official wrote : — " The Bute County Directory has many times 
proved most valuable when visitors have come to me inquiring for the addresses of 
their Rothesay friends. In fact, we could hardly do without it." 

An Arran postmaster wrote : — " I am much obliged for your courtesy in sending 
me the Bute County Directory, but do not think it reasonable that I should have all 
the benefit of the information you have compiled with so much care and expense entirely 
free of expense, so I take the liberty of enclosing postal order for Is 4d for cost and 
postage.

Shorthand, 

Typewriting, 

Esperanto, and 

Business Methods. 



MR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUCTION are conducted 
during the two Winter Quarters— October till December and January till 
March, Private Tuition by arrangement. 

Shorthand will continue to be taught with a view to its subsequent 
usefulness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting special attention will be devoted to Punctuation and 
Capitalisation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practiaal 
Printing, and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association, is in touch with important regions all over the world, 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be ' ' Peace 
on earth, good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of great 
tribulation. Its efficacy in tracing missing friends and making new ones has been 
repeatedly evidenced — even in this terrible War. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments !>y means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. " The meek shall inherit the 
earth." May we soon see the "complete overthrow of the blatant, self-righteous and 
arrogant despots. 

Business Methods. — Instruction given in other Up-to-Date Business 
Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Profession, and the 
ground-work and minutsea have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, apractical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & OOY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 

are known, read and appreciated thronghout the whole civilised world. Many of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners. 



CLASSES CONDUCTED 

From OCTOBER till MARCH, 

at 22 Bridge street.
